Helping leaders see the new world view
In today’s climate organisations need a new approach to leadership; one that is people-oriented rather than situation-oriented. Not only is your organisation facing change, but your workforce is changing. The values, motivations and outlook of your people is shifting as new generations reach adulthood and join the workforce. Your leaders themselves are changing too, as you promote young and ambitious stars with high potential. But what isn’t changing fast enough is leaders’ understanding of this new landscape, and their upskilling to cope with the new pressures and demands.
It’s easy to see the people in your organisation as the problem. It’s especially easy for leaders to lay the blame on the workforce for missed targets, falling productivity and profitability, stress, burnout, churn and experience loss. These are undeniably symptoms of an organisation under pressure. Those pressures are both external to the organisation and at the same time internal; caused by the organisation itself as it tries to adapt, to weather volatility, to innovate and get ahead, or even just to survive.
If your organisation is suffering with any of these symptoms or if it has lost its flow, then it’s likely your leadership team may be looking at the problem with an outdated view. It sounds trite but your people aren’t the problem, they’re the solution. The problem lies in how your organisation is developing in this new landscape, and how your leaders are responding.
The issues of wellness in the workplace, resilience and leading a multigenerational workforce are crucial for leaders to master to future proof the success of organisations in today’s climate. We help leaders see this new world view. Enabling them to harness the strengths of everyone in their organisation; to transform their organisation’s behaviour and to regain its flow.
